[texts]ERIC ED299031: Kindergarten Teacher Training in the United States from 1870 to 1920. - ERIC
A wide variety of kindergarten teacher training programs existed in America during the 50-year period between 1920 and 1970 after Froebel's system was introduced. The most significant reasons for this variety were the sources of knowledge about the system, the ability of its advocates to read idiomatic German, and the basic personality characteristics of persons who gained leadership. The development from an apprenticeship method to kindergarten training schools and then to incorporation of kind...

[texts]ERIC ED371355: Improving the Powers of Taste: An Historical Case for Using Literature To Teach Composition. - ERIC
As the issue of whether literature might be used to teach composition has not been a lively issue of debate among current scholars, those interested in the topic might look to George Jardine, professor of logic and philosophy at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, from 1774 to 1824. As Robert Connors suggests, teachers stand to gain much by turning to the "good-willed" practitioner rather than the giants of current scholarly dialogues...

The fact that a textbook presents a codified method does not mean that this textbook is an accurate representation of what happened in practice.

This outside source material is where oral history comes in. While it is far too late to reclaim much information from the earliest years of composition teaching...

Twenty-five years ago a small volume of essays entitled "Crisis in the Humanities" was published containing an ominous message: namely, that the humanistic disciplines had arrived at a crossroad--a turning point at which a decisive change for better or worse was imminent. Humanistic scholarship appears to have declined since that crossroad was reached, and the reason may be that as pursued at present in many areas, it produces knowledge that is of little intrinsic interest and relevance...

Hans-Georg Gadamer proposes a philosophical hermeneutics that sheds light on the ways in which scholars have envisioned the history of teaching writing. Offering an alternative to a linear model of history, in which events are viewed as links in a chain, Gadamer's hermeneutics regards a text as a locus or web through which other texts are continuously woven. In this model, the historian is asked to work speculatively rather than prescriptively, attending to the way in which a text suggests, argu...
